Restaurant Review

Not a Party Yet

Matanza has bountiful beers but issues with spices and prices

The rainbow of tap handles represent over a hundred beers from a seriously expansive lineup and the ideas behind the entrées are innovative, but can plated reality measure up?

San Ysidro Day

You won't find another place in the country more steeped in Catholic customs and centuries-old traditions than New Mexico, so it comes as no surprise that a day dedicated to the patron saint of farmers is still observed, even against the backdrop of modern industry. Today starting at 10 a.m., San Ysidro Day begins as a procession at the San Ysidro Carousel (Isleta and Arenal SW). Follow musicians, dancers and religious leaders to Sanchez Farm (Arenal and Lopez SW) for a blessing of the acequias and farms. Following the events, attend a matanza with proceeds benefitting the South Valley Regional Association of Acequias. Parking is available at St. Anne's Church (1400 Arenal SW). For more, email or call 842-7343. (Adam Fox)
